"Sue Sill’s 'Roadrunner' is exceptional not only for its technical excellence,
but for its well-conceived composition.
Whereas most of the flora or fauna watercolors keep their subjects isolated,
Sill, a serious botanist, has placed her roadrunner against the South Texas brush,
informing us of its place. The bird also turns its head, tuning in to its wild environment."
